Change your life with IVF:
IVF has brought about a sea of change in the life of the people around the world over the last 30 years or so since its invention. As a matter of fact, couples (who did not have a child before) finally could enjoy the warmth of parenthood. Infertility isn’t a bane. It’s actually an outcome of cumulative factors that can affect both the partners of a couple. Having said that, we mean, infertility is neither associated with women nor men alone. Therefore, IVF can successfully be used to treat infertility in the following cases.
What is IVF?
IVF stand for in vitro fertilisation. In simple words, IVF is a manual process of fertilising an egg with a sperm on a laboratory dish in a controlled environment and then, transferring the embryo in the uterus. However, a surgeon may prefer to transfer more than one embryos to the uterus on a case to case basis. In short, IVF can be defined as an assisted reproductive technology (ART). However, there are two more types of ART that are widely practised by surgeons based on specific conditions and the treatment required for the purpose such as zygote intrafallopian transfer (ZIFT) and gamete intrafallopian transfer (GIFT).
Side effects of IVF:
Side effects of IVF will vary from a patient to patient. However, some of the common side effects are constipation, mild bloating, mild cramping, a small amount of fluid release after the process, breast tenderness, headaches, mood swings, and abdominal pain. However, you must call a doctor in the case you experience pelvic pain, high fever (100.50F or above), heavy vaginal bleeding, and blood in the urine.
Millions of people around the world have benefited using IVF. The number keeps increasing with each day. The success rate of IVF decreases with age especially on attaining 35 or above. In all other cases, the success rate of IVF is estimated at 50% per cycle.

As a matter of fact, we have a high success rate even in the case of patients who couldn’t conceive through IVF treatment at other clinics or hospitals before.
Why IVF failure:
If an embryo transfer was done, then the embryo was possibly not implanted properly. Having said that, we mean, the reason for an IVF failure could be an embryo implantation failure. However, it is not known whether the IVF failure was actually owing to the implantation failure, embryo problem, or a uterus problem. According to a study, most of the fertility specialists believe that 95% of IVF failures can be attributed to the embryo arrest that can be caused either by the genetic abnormality of the embryo or its chromosomal abnormality that makes the embryo weak for its normal growth after an implantation.
However, to know the exact reason behind an IVF failure, a patient would need to undergo a pre-implantation genetic screening – PGS. It is essentially a test to check the normalcy of the chromosome. You may be surprised to know that almost 50% of the human embryos meant for IVF treatment bear abnormal chromosomes and such abnormality potentially increases with the female age. You should know here that each human being has a pair of 23 chromosomes and thus, 46 chromosomes in total. This chromosomal abnormality is primarily responsible for 70% of the miscarriages during the early pregnancy.
